On Friday, the church quilting group is going to make Disappearing Pinwheel blocks. A kindly unknown quilter was cleaning out her stash and gave us, among other things, a package of 10" squares. So we are going to use those with some contrasting fabric to make these blocks.
If you look on line you can find more than one explanation on how to make them. Last week, I created a sample and we spent the morning arranging the blocks in a way that we liked. I believe that there are at least 11 arrangements of the blocks that produce something pleasing.
So I sewed around the edges of 2 squares from my stash, and cut them on the diagonal.
I cut the pinwheel block (after sewing) into 9 blocks.
After we played with them, we ended up with this.
Yesterday, I took the good fabric and made 2 more.
My camera was not doing what I wanted. The dark fabric is royal blue with dots of shades lighter blues and turquoise. The precut blocks are yellows greens and blues.
I see a seam I think I need to straighten, a bit.
I still see snow everywhere. I am tired of boots and heavy coats so I invited some spring in.
Amazing how much pleasure $3.99 can bring.
A friend asked if I could make a sweater for a baby girl arriving in her world, soon.
This is the 5 hour Baby Sweater. I have no idea how long it actually took, because I wasn't knitting continually on it until it was finished, but it was pretty quick. I need to steam it a little to get the button bands to behave. Then I will add buttons, and it will be ready.
The foster cat is learning how to live the good life. I found him stretched out in a sunbeam, this morning.
I hope you find a sunbeam, this week.
